Welcome to FIVE79

The home of the Chivers Finelines kits

FIVE79 produce a wide range of model railway kits in high impact polystyrene, white metal and etch brass in various scales. Highly detailed rolling stock kits in standard gauge and narrow gauge in N, H0, 4mm and 7mm scales. All  kits were originally produced and designed for straight forward construction by Roger Chivers (Chivers Finelines), while being accurate to the prototype.


Chivers Finelines kits have evolved over the last 40 years into a range well over 120 products, producing models of prototypes from across the world. In 2020 the entire range was placed into the care of Roger's son, Matthew (FIVE79), with the intention of returning most of the products back into production. This website was launched to showcase the range and available models to buy direct from us. Products that are listed to purchase are in stock, and will be dispatched within 3 days of payment, unless otherwise stated. Where kits are available but out of stock, you will be notified by email, please allow up to 2 weeks delivery.


FIVE79 was originally set up in 2010 to take over the production of various kits from the Chivers Finelines range.
